How about renaming file by deleting ".backup1" and opening "game.capx" as usual.

Does the error message say anything else?
I had a similar problem after a crash, where certain images couldn't be located.
I fixed it by opening the .capx in winrar and renaming image files :\
dunno if it's the same for you though.

and when i try to rename it to .zip to unzip, it says no file. but the file size is correct. What is wrong?

That's why I'm using folder version for everything.. When C2 crash (and it's crashing every time I exit my project) randomly break the project, so, I go inside the .caproj and investigate what's wrong. 9 of 10 times is the texture folder missing a texture file...

But some days the texture problem never occur, it's a total randomly event..

So, I give you the tip, use the folder save style and copy the directory every day, or you're in risk of lose all your job..
